I'm looking for some backpacker accommodation in central London but I'm not too sure which area is better - safer, convenient etc.
Can anyone recommend either a good backpacker or an area to look into?

One other thing....when staying in backpackers, would u recommend double private rooms, female dorms, mixed dorms...has anyone found one to be better than the other or has anyone got any stories?

Regarding the room type, I find this really depends on the person. I don't mind staying in dorm rooms, but my wife would avoid it at all costs if she had a choice! For me as a guy there's no big difference staying in a mixed or male only dorm room, but a lot of girls would probably prefer female dorms only. Of course a private room can be nice every now and then too just to get a good nights sleep if you've been woken up by others one time too many :)

I've never stayed at either of the two following places but they are popular with those booking here:

Picadilly Hotel/Hostel and Astor Hostel

Hope that helps somewhat. There's a ton of accommodation in London!!!

St. Christophers is also very popular by the way :)

Well, EXACTLY the same accommodations are also listed right here on TP so why leave? :) (we work with the same booking partner as they do...)
